Dog-Sitting, Greenfield, BradfordshireAugust 15 in the United Kingdom
We are taking care of two Cocker Spaniels, Holly (the black one), and Cookie (the brown one). We spent the first day settling in as we usually do: laundry, shopping for groceries, and making soup. It gives us all a chance to get used to each other, and of course, we usually need some down time. The dogs are cute, affectionate and lots of fun. Holly absolutely loves to chase a ball, and when she returns it, she gives it a little shove so it rolls right up to our feet so we can throw it again right away! Cookie doesn't chase balls, but when she's had enough of Holly getting all the attention playing fetch, Cookie steals the ball and chews it to pieces!
We are in a very small village. The villages have installed "traffic-calming" measures, and none of the secondary roads go straight. We have to plan on twice as long as we think a drive will take, due to winding, narrow roads, and of course, sometimes Elizabeth (our GPS), gets mixed up and directs us us the long way.Read more
